Recently I've been doing some work for Microsoft. They're keen that I make it clear that anything I say on this blog, or via my Twitter account (@mrlacey) is entirely my own thought, opinion, etc.
Nothing I say here is the opinions of anyone but myself.
As far as I am concerned there is no conflict of interest with my continuing to run the Windows Phone User Group and do a short term contract with Microsoft. The group continues to remain an independent group. If you have any concerns over this then please let me know.
If you've built Windows Phone or Windows Store apps you can cross-promote them with AdDuplex to get more users.
